Birthday Time

Hey there!  We had a large storm this morning but the sun wants to pop out.  It was thundering. lightening, and raining at 6:30 AM which does not happen so much.  I say this because the kids catch their bus at that time so I did not want them standing outside in the lightening.  They were huddled in the covered patio trying to avoid the rain and lightening.  I tried to convince them to come inside because we could see and hear the bus when it got close but teenagers are sure they have it under control and  after my plea's of worry the bus pulled up and they ran off to catch it 200 feet away.  I seriously don't remember ever having to worry about the lightening during a storm while waiting for the bus.  I guess I did at some point but it escapes me now. 
Anyhow, I am here to post my card for Crafty Creations today and so tickled to say that Elizabeth Mae is our sponsor!  Yeah! 

My niece is getting ready to have a birthday and I made this card for her.  I hope she likes it.  Super simple and very classy.  I used some My Mind's Eye script paper and punched a scallop top.  I attached it to a Papertrey Ink bottom with rounded corners.  The velvet ribbon and lace were added to hide where they met.  The dress form was colored with Copics and a Stickles Platinum added to the spots.  I used a Jo-Ann's rub-on with tiny rhinestones.
